          Comments about Panasonic BT-L2150PJ 21.5" LCD Production Monitor:

          This is a good monitor for modest productions that need something larger than a 9" Panasonic 910, but without DC power or looping HD-SDI connections. A built-in clear plastic protective cover is very welcome, as are the array of menu-driven settings including markers. It is a slightly odd size, and transport case possibilities should be factored in to your budget.

            This is a great value monitor for on set use, it's on the larger end of what I'd like on set but at this kind of price it's great value!

                I'm using the HD SDI input out of my Decklink card.
                I'm no engineer, but quality looks as good as LH 1710. I didn't like the reflective protective plexiglass cover, so I took it off.
